    Every morning I wake up in pain. This will get better. I overcame paralysis so I will deal with this. New arthritic leg and hip pains just give me another source of pain. Not a big deal. We laugh about these and say..'OK. I am not going anywhere, anytime soon. God is having way too much fun with me'... Read more

    Enthusiasm is something we need to keep our spirits and goals alive. It can get so hard to do at times so what helps? Getting to a place where others KNOW what you go through 24/7. Oh our friends and families say they "know" but frankly, only someone that I GOING through this really DOES understand.... Read more
